Thumbs up from me! I want one at some point...
It ooks to be well balanced option (at the point cost listed)...
Blah! Not good at all... I will keep my BattleCannon/Vanquisher turret...
I am not an IG player, so please excuse my lack of knowledge on the topic! However, I am able to induct IG into my army, and already have a small detachment that allows me to have a Russ and two Armored Fists on the table. For my Russ, I can use either regular turret, or the infamous Vanquisher setup.
In the tank killer role, the later is a very good choice, however, it is rather expensive, and still uses a BS3 of a guard trooper. Well, it seems that Forgeword came up with another option: Russ Annihilator with twin-linked lasscannons!
Looking at the experimental rules, it seems to be a steal at the point cost listed…
Hence my two questions:
- IA books list all the options of Russ as available for any army that can use/induct/ally them. This variant seems to be linked to DKOK line. I assume that, as with others, it will be available to everyone capable of fielding a Russ?
- What is your general opinion in this tank? Should I run to buy one soon?
From just looking at the rules, it is rather good. Haven't got one myselfthough.
Rawr. Chaos are evil
In dedicated Imperial Guard armies, its typically the infantry that handle the anti-tank duties, while the Tanks handle the anti-infantry duties.
If, however, you are using IG as an inducted ally and have the anti-infantry slots all locked up with solid units, then I think the Leman Russ Annihilator makes a great anti-tank Tank.
For options I think a hull lascannon, no sponsons, extra armor, and smoke launchers would be ideal.
Ideal setup would be hull HB, HB spons. Move 6' fire twinlinked lascannon and 9 hb shots at BS3 .. 14, 13, 11. About the same as chaos annihalor with mutated hull
Nice looking tank but as far as useing on in my army is concerned i will have to say no. One twin lascannon shot and a single hull lascannon shot for 150 something points is not a very good choice in my book. It would be ok for a fun game i guess as its looks very nice and we need a few more types of leman russ tanks in the codex.
"Hey sarge, this lasgun is heavy. I wish we had something lighter."
FF7: ABOUT RANDOM BATTLES
Hmmm... I am a WH player, so long-range is my weak spot. In large games (small will never see inducted IG) one tank like that might be worth 140 points IMHO... Plus, like said above - the sculpt looks really cool too
Well, since I have the body of the tank and two turrets, might as well buy a third one :yes:
